How do you set mole traps?
The set-up is fairly simple. Locate the active surface tunnel. Press it down with your heel and push the unset trap down to make sure the tines can smoothly penetrate the soil. Then carefully pull back the spring, set up the trigger and place the trap in the same holes as before.
How do you get human smell out of a mole trap?
Moles have a keen sense of smell and may be deterred by human scent. If you have already touched the trap with bare hands, submerge it in boiling water to remove human scent.
